Dr Fei Zheng | ARC Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science

Fei completed both his BSc and PhD at Shandong University, China, the latter supervised by Prof. Xiaotao Hao.  He focused on the preparation and characterisation of soluble Graphene Oxide (GO) nanosheets and their blends with conjugated polymers for organic solar cell applications. He then spent one year of postdoctoral research in Prof. Baohua Jia's Group at the Centre for Micro-photonics, Swinburne University of Technology.  Now he is investigating the structure and working mechanism of the 2D perovskite solar cells based on the Ultrafast and Microspectroscopy Laboratories (Trevor/Ken's Group), and the collabration with Flexible Electronic Laboratory, CSIRO Clayton.

Qualifications: 
PhD, Shandong University, Jinan, China
BSc, Shandong University, Jinan, China
